The Body of People in Hell ~ Hi all readers! In previous articles, I explained a little about Hell and its inhabitants. In this article, I will explain the condition of the body of people in Hell.
As we know, Hell is a place of torment for those who sin and do not repent before they die. Maybe we can not imagine how their body condition. But clearly, their condition is very alarming.
The Body of People in Hell
In Daqa’iqu al-Akhbar fi Dzikri al-Jannati wa an-Nar is explained;
The Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “The faces of people in Hell are black. Their view was dark […]. Everyone’s heads are like domes. Their bodies are like mountains. Their eyes are blue. Their stature is like a mountain. Their hair is like reeds. They are not dead and not alive. Each of them has seventy skins. From one skin to another there are seven levels of fire. In their stomachs, there are snakes that come from fire. They heard the sound of the snakes like the sound of wild animals. They are bound with chains and chains. They were beaten with hit instruments. They are dragged over their faces.”
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “How pitiful are people in Hell! They exclaimed, “O our Lord! Torture has surrounded us.” They are imprisoned in conditions of being bound. If they are silent, they have no mercy. If they are patient, they are not safe. If they cry out, then they are not answered […]. Their pus is flowing. Their genitals are visible. Their colors change. They say, “O our Lord! Our adversity overcame us and we were an erring people. Truly we are people who are perverted. O our Lord, remove from us the punishment; surely, we are believers.”
What people say in Hell is as explained in Quran;
قَالُواْ رَبَّنَا غَلَبَتۡ عَلَيۡنَا شِقۡوَتُنَا وَكُنَّا قَوۡمٗا ضَآلِّينَ ١٠٦
They shall say: O our Lord! our adversity overcame us and we were an erring people. (Al-Mu’minun ; 106).
رَّبَّنَا ٱكۡشِفۡ عَنَّا ٱلۡعَذَابَ إِنَّا مُؤۡمِنُونَ ١٢
Our Lord! remove from us the punishment; surely, we are believers. (Ad-Dukhan ; 12).
Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ahu alayhi wa sallam said, “How pitiful are the people in Hell! Allah created a mountain for them. Then they were told, “Go up!” They went up with the condition above their faces, (faces down and feet up) for a thousand years. The mountains then threw them inside the base of Hell in a loss condition.”
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of the condition of body of people in Hell. Hopefully, we are not one of them. Amen!
I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
